While growing up, I have lived through some trends or fads…whatever you want to call them. I will mention the most memorable ones. I enjoyed some …and cringed at others. When I was younger, of course I didn’t have much sense of ‘whats-in-or-whats-out’ (my sister would say I still haven’t developed that sense. idk), so I didn’t really care about what I wore. I just wore the clothes in my closet and appreciated every article of clothing. I am thankful that I am thankful for that.
When I was in junior high school, no one cared about phones, technology, or all those things that make you look old. Kids should be kids. That is why my future kids will live in a closet until they reach high school (maybe not even until college LOL). Anyway, back then life was more about Pokemon cards [we spent so much money on those. smh.], yo-yos [I was the master at yo-yo-ing], flared jeans [they were comfortable and didn’t stop blood circulation], PLAYING OUTSIDE INSTEAD OF ROTTING YOUR BRAIN WITH RADIATION/USELESS INFORMATION, easy-bake ovens [I baked Mc’Donald’s apple pies in there, along with Oreo cakes. good times], limited after-school cartoons and Saturday morning cartoons [Go Arthur and NO cable, haha], using your imagination [siblings and I used to play make-believe games [thank your Mr.Rogers] like house-house, store-store, or ‘go and save your brother from the shark in the water (our blue carpet) while the rest of us were stranded on an island (the bunk-bed)’ ] , etc… I can go on and on and on. But I won’t.
Those were the good old days…I hope my future kids don’t criticize the past, because (go against it all you want) the past generations will always be better than the ones after it.
Now back to the important things in life:
Dal (Lentils) Keema (ground chicken) with chawal (white Basmati rice)...AND I made that!!!!
